McLachlan does a wonderful job blending romance with fantasy, while also making the romance believable and relevant to the story. The writing is crisp and clean, not over burdened with details. At the same time, Moira’s world is a rich and complex version of the early 1900’s. The author’s explanations of her empaths are plausible and convincing. More importantly, their abilities remain consistent throughout the story.
The book’s real strength lies in its characters. Both Moira and Keenan struggle with demons that haunt them and each has reason to mistrust the other. McLachlan feeds the reader details throughout the story and allows her players to grow in ways that feel authentic.
Though many of McLachlan’s characters are troubled or twisted, they reflect the world she built. Keenan does not rail against the unfair social structure that enslaved Moira, even as his attraction to her grows. He appears to accept, at least on some level, the way this society has chosen to deal with empaths. Moira does not try to make herself more acceptable to society even as she moves through it as the investigation progresses.
This was a very enjoyable read and I’m eagerly anticipating the sequel!
The art of story pacing is becoming a lost one.
I have poked through the reviews here and noticed a couple that seem ridiculously out of place, and I think that is why. Many people no longer respect what isn't given to them straight away, so like brats they harshly judge and criticize and stamp their feet all over a book, as if an author hadn't poured his or her heart and soul into it, and didn't deserve to be treated like a human being after putting words to paper. The internet makes this so easy. No repercussions or need to defend the indefensible.
They have forgotten, or perhaps never even knew, how much skill it takes to weave a tale with complex plot lines, mystery, and romance, and to spin it out over the course of several books.
This author hasn't forgotten. She kept the lines of a complexly imagined tale, an intriguing mystery, and a budding romance between well developed opposing characters intertwined without getting them tangled up. She kept the tension at a teasing simmer, just shy of a boil and had me eagerly anticipating the culmination of all of these strands, and when it ended I couldn't wait for book 2.
And yes, the beautiful cover has matching insides.
